      Here's how I slept in my hammock in Loxahatchee State Park last winter:

      http://ph.groups.yahoo.com/group/swflpc/photos/view/3456?b=2

      I used it as a test for pitching the hammock on the ground as if I were
      above tree line or something. If there were no bugs I would have just
      foregone the hammock and slept under the tarp. But it was Florida and the
      noseeums were vicisious that night. So I pitched my Hennessy under the tarp
      to use as a bug shelter. Yes, I was sleeping on a pad on the ground, and no,
      I wasn't as comfortable as I would have been in the air, but it was a legal
      camp.

      State park rules often come under departmental regulations and may well be
      chargeable misdemeanors. I know this is the case in Virginia, so I would
      suggest researching the regulations of the specific park(s) first...know
      when you are breaking a rule, regulation, or law.

      Either you do it "stealthily" or you bring a stand. If you are with

      someone that's using a tent you could set the tent up and act like you

      are using it. Later after dark put your hammock up and take it down

      first thing in the morning.

      I don't think it's against the law, just against the rules and policies.

      Of course, I'm no lawyer and you'll have to make that call yourself.

      Since they don't like anything hanging from the trees, how does one use

      a hammock in a Florida State Park?
